ANDRSW JACKSON’S NIECE BEGS
FOR A NIGHI’S LODGING.
How One of the Washington Family
Peddles Trinkets, and How Jeffer
son’s Grandchildren Work for Their
Living—Tyler’s Son Who is in the
Treasury Department—Rough Esti
mates of Presidential Wealth.
From the World.
Washington, Dec. 11.—A niece of An
drew Jackson had to beg for a night’s lodg
ing at a Washington hotel this week. Sixty
years old and without a cent in her pocket,
she arrived here from Washington Territo
ry on her way to her friends at Staunton,
Va. Her transportation from Chicago hail
been furnished by charity, and it was char
ity that gave her a night’s rest here and
sent her on her way South. She had three
grandchildren with her and she was abso
lutely destitute. She has many friends at
Staunton, and she seemed bright and cheer
ful in the midst of her trouble. The chil
dren were well dressed, and they showed no
signs of the sorrow which seems to hang
over the relatives and descendants of our
Thomas Jefferson’s granddaughter, Sep
tiina Meikleham, died here recently, leaving
several grandchildren to battle with the
world. One of her sons, owing to a severe
sickness, is not at all strong mentally. One
of her daughters is not well enough to work
and the other is employed in one of the
government departments. Another great
granddaughter of Jefferson has charge of a
school in Baltimore, and Monticello has long
since passed out of the hands of the family.
Just before Jefferson died he was so much
in debt that a lottery scheme was gotten up
to sell his property and relieve his necessi
ties. He left practically nothing to his
children, and they received some two sums
of SIO,OOO each from the Legislatures of two
of the Southern States.
John Tyler left some property, but it all
went to bis second wife. One of his sons,
Gen. John Tyler, who drove a four-in-hand
while bis father was in the White House,
and who was then called the handsomest
man in Washington, lives off a position in
the Treasury Department, and one of
Tyler’s most accomplished daughters, a lady
who presided over the Executive Mansion
after her mother’s death and until her
father married Julia Gardner, is a guest at
Corcoran’s Old Ladies’ Home here. A man
whc claims to be one of the Washington
family, and who, by the way, has a face
strikingly like that of the President, peddles
trinkets in a little booth in the Pension
building. Dolly Madison, the President’s
wife, was, during a part of her last days,
furnished food by a colored man who had
been in President Madison’s service. She
got, however, a large sum of money from
Congress for Madison’s papers, and it was
this that eased her declining years.
Most of the Presidents nave died poor,
and few of them have made much out of
office-holding. Monroe was so poor that
his latter days were spent with his son-in
law, Samuel L. Gouverneur, in New \ ork,
and there he died. Harrison left nothing
to speak of. Polk left about $150,000, in
cluding Polk Place, at Nashville, where his
widow now lives. It is a valuable block of
ground, in the centre of the town, which
has risen largely in value since the Presi
Martin Van Buren made money out of
politics. He started life poor and died
well-to-do. One estimate puts his estate at
SBOO,OOO, and he made money in real estate
as well as In the law. Both of the Adamses
were money-savers, if not money-makers.
The letters of John Adams, the second
President, to his wife, Abigail, repeatedly
urge her to cut down the household ex
penses and to practice economy. He
lunched himself ou oat cake and lemonade
and he walked far oftener than he rode.
John Quincy Adams received nearly
$500,000 from the government in salaries
during his lifetime, and he possessed the
Yankee thrift. The Adams family at pres
ent is one of the richest in New England,
and I was told at Kansas City that Charles
Francis Adams had more than $1,000,000 in
vested in real estate there. He has railroad
stocks and bonds in addition, and he makes
his money breed like Australian rabbits.
Andrew Jackson spent more than his sal
ary while he was in the White House, and
he had to borrow money to keep up with
his expenses. Thomas Jefferson borrowed
the money that carried him out of Wash
ington when he left the Presidency, and
Andy Johnson, though he entertained con
siderably, is supposed to have saved at least
$50,000 during his White House career. He
died, I am told, worth about SIOO,OOO, and
the most of this came from economy. It
was a pretty good estate for a tailor to
leave. James Buchanan was making about
$7,000 a year at the law when he entered
Congress, and ho spent during the Presi
dency what was left from his living ex
penses in charity. He was not, however, a
rich man when he died, and his estate of
Wheatlands was sold a year or two ago.
President Fillmore began life as a wool
carder. During the three yeaas he was en
gaged to his sweetheart he had not enough
money to pay the expenses of the hundred
and fifty miles which lay between her home
in Saratoga county N. Y., and where he
had begun to practise law. During the
first years of their marrage his wife did the
housework anil taught school, and still he
died one of the richest of the Presidents.
The greater part of his fortune, however,
came from his second marriage to a rich
woman of Buffalo, whom he courted after
his first wife died.
President Cleveland is supposed to be
worth about SUX),OOO, and he owns, I am
told, real estate in Buffalo which is rapidly
advancing in value. President Arthur left
much less than he was supposed to be
worth. Garfield shortly beforo his death
owed $30,000 to Gen. Swaim, and Grant did
not add to his fortune by his White House
career. Hayes made money out of the
Presidency, and is rich through inheritances
and economy. The Presidents, as a rule,
havo not saved money during their Presi
dency ; but the same abilities which made
them Presidents would, if they had been
used in the field of money-making and
money-saving, have given them fortunes.

A DETECTIVE’S STORY.
The Veil Drawn Aside, Revealing Some
Skeletons in Family Closets.
From the Brooklyn Standard-Union.
“What has boon my best casof” inquired a
police headquarters detective of a reporter
yesterday, os they stood chatting together
on tho steps of the municipal building. “My
Imst ‘case’ was one out of which the least
good results wore obtained, although I
worked on it for a month or six weeks.
Come up stairs and I will relate it to you.”
Heated in tho oozy apartment allotted to
the members of the secret service of
Brooklyn, the reporter listened in silence to
the following interesting recital:
“This story, in which a husband’s bru
tality, a wife’s sufferings, a naval Lieuten
ant’s infatuation, a‘i laugh tor’s foolish con
duct and an elderly nch married man’s
duplicity are the various threads out of
which tho plot is woven, is, so far as ro
mance in real life is concerned, one of the
most remarkable of it* kine that has ever
appeared in print, outside the pages of tho
sensational novel or flash story paper. Ail
of the people concerned in the various in
cidents relnting to the case are of tho high
est social standing in Brooklyn and New
i ork, and are congratulating themselves on
having, as they supposed, succeeded in
keeping the entire affair a secret from tho
newspaper reporters of both cities. That is
why mv labors were brought to so sudden u
termination after 1 had succeeded in tracing
the movements of tho actors in the drama,
and secured the names of all tho iiarties con
cerned as well.
“Until about six months ago a wealthy
manufacturing jeweler, whose place of
business is in Maiden lane, Hew York, lived
with his wife aud two daughters, the latter
aged 10 and 15 respectively, in a handsome
brown-stone house on the ‘Hill:’ The neigh
bors considered them a happy family, but
such was not tho case, os the husband was a
man of violent temper, who abused noth
wife and daughters in a most outrageous
manner. On one occasion ho oven went so
fur as to knock the woman down with iiis
clenched fist and then left the house. She
thereupon sought refuge with a lady friend
residing in Forty-second street, New York,
while tho daughters were taken by their
uncle to the Clinton House in this city.
“ VVhile they were at the Clinton' House
the father visited the place and threatened
to kill his brother-in-law for interfering,
and demanded that the girls be given into
his custody. The girls were frightened and
called on one of the strange guests in the
hotel for protection. The gentleman ap
pealed to, after hearing their story, placed
his room at their disposal and slept else
where himself. On the following morning
the girls went to their mother in New York.
A few days later their mother secured
apartments in a hotel on upper Broadway,
where, with the lady who had harbored
her when she first went to that city, they
have since resided.
“While the family were living in Brook
lyn the elder daughter made the acquaint
ance of a young naval Lieutenant, whose
vessel was at that time stationed at the
Brooklyn navy yard. It was the usual case
of love at first sight—the couple losing no
opportunity of being together. She at
tended at the balls and receptions given on
board the ship, aud in the afternoons would
inspect the various points of interest about
the yard, leaning upon the arm of the young
officer. The mother was aware of her
daughter’s conduct, but, seeing no harm in
it, she allowed matters to go on as they had
been doing without protest.
“About five months ago the father, learn
ing the whereabouts of his family, visited
the hotel in New York at which they were
stopping. A stormy interview between
husband and wife followed. In a fit of pas
sion the man beat his wife into almost in
sensibility, and then departed. As the
woman was about to become a mother, the
brutal treatment which she received at tho
hands of her husband brought on a danger
ous illness, and for weeks her life was des
paired of. Shortly after this event the two
daughters disappeared most mysteriously,
and in spite of a search instituted by the
police of both cities, nothing was discovered
as to their whereabouts for several days.
Then a telegram signed by the younger girl,
was received by the mother. It was date*!
from Arlington, Pa., and begged for money
w ith which to return to this city.
“In her trouble the distracted mother
sent for an old family friend in the person
of a wealthy married gentleman, a private
banker in New York, of mature years and
large family. He heard the story, and not
being willing to trust so important matter
in the hands of a missionary, the old gen
tleman decided to go after the runaways in
person. That same night he reached Ar
lington, and after giving the Lieutenant
sufficient money to enable him to rejoin his
ehip, he took the two girls to Philadelphia
and found accommodations for them in a
theatrical boarding-house on Spruce street.
“After transacting some business in that
city, which made it necessary for him to
reniain there for two or three days, the
banker, accompanied by the girls, returned
to New York. He learned during the jour
ney that the elder girl had eloped with the
Lieutenant, and taken her sister with her
to give the proceeding the appearance of
respectability, but no marriage ceremony
had been performed.
“When they reached New York the old
gentleman placed the girls in a coach and
ordered the driver to take them home to
their mother. The younger, sister arrived
there in safety, but the other did not ac
company her. Instead of doing so she
stepped out of the carriage while it was in
motion and went to the Grand Central
depot and boarded a train bound for Boston.
Where she procured the money to pay the
expenses of the trip is a profound mystery,
as she had none when the banker found her
“On reaching Boston tho girl went to a
fashionable hotel on Tremont street, where
she remained for a few days, acting while
there as if expecting someone to join her.
In this she was not disappointed, for in less
than a week the respectable old banker bade
his w ife good-by, telling her at the same
time that business of the most urgent na
ture called him to Boston, and that he would
not be likelv to return inside of a week or
ten days. With this explanation he left,
and was next seen in that city by a private
detective, in company with the runaway
girl. At the end of ten days the old gentle
man returned to New York alone In a
few days later the young lady made her ap
pearance at home, refusing all explanation
as to how she had spent the time. The
case was placed in my hands by the legal
adviser of the banker’s wife, who, suspect
ing that her husband’s conduct was open to
question, decided to institute an investiga
tion, with the intention of securing a
divorce if her fears were verified. I secured
all the above facts, but they were never
made public, as the owners of the names
implicated effected a private settlement of
the whole matter. While Ido not, on that
account, feel justified in giving you names.
I may add that one of the actors in my
drama was before Justice Courtney on civil
action but last week, and that said civil
action, in a measure, resulted from the
affair described above.”
SULLIVAN BEFORE THE PRINCE.
The Mighty Boston Face Defacer to
Spar Before Royalty.
From the New York Star.
London, Dec. B.— His Royal Highness the
Prince of Wales will see for the first time
to-morrow how the Big ’un can handle his
hands in true American style. The engage
ment has been made and all the nobs will be
at the Pelican Club to see John L. pound
Jack Ashton around the ring and show how
easy it is for a man who has nerve and sci
ence to do the “Sleep, Baby, Sle p,” act.
All the sporting men of any prominence
will be present, and so will Iho Amei lean
newspaper men, who have come here to see
Kilrnin close Jem Smith’s eyes in gentle
slumber. The committee having the spar
ring match in charge wifi make it the event
of tho season, and altogether it will be as
nice and quiet a little bout os anyone would
care to look at.
No one will lie hurt unless, possibly, it is
Ashton, and the Prince, who is a good one
with tho gloves, may take it into his head to
ask Sullivan to show him how ho nits so
hard. If he does, John L. will have the
pleasure of having a go at a real live prince,
with tho c ances largely in favor of the
Prince getting some good old-fashioned ad
vice from America’s champion and Boston’s
The original programme for to-morrow’s
sparring match was that Jem Smith was
to receive favors at Sullivan’s hands, and
Smith agreed to stand up lief ore him. To
day Smith came up from Brighton fully
prepared and expecting to meet John L. in
the Pelican Club’s ring to-morrow. Ho ar
rived hero in the best of spirits and seemed
anxious to meet Sullivan in a friendly
match. An hour later his manager tore
into his presence aud told him he could not
“Why not?” asked Smith.
“Good heavens, man, d’ye want to bo
murdered before yaire match? Don’t you
know there’s no play in that man, ’n ’e
cawn’t ’it an easy blow to save hisself?
Don’t ye thunderin’ well know that Ws
a ’ard ’itter, even when Vs in ha playful
mood? No, me boy, ye cawn’t spar.”
Smith was disappointed —badly disap
pointed. He wanted to appear before Al
bert Edward, and had set nis heart on it,
only to be called off by his manager.
A young cluli man, who affects to lie a
real bad man, although he is not old enough
to wear a moustache, asked Sullivan to-day
if he was going to fight Mitchell.”
“What'" roared John, “fight that
blower; No! lam not going to fight him.
There will be no fight. I’ll eat him before
the fight begins"
The young duo man is now willing to bet
“fifty pun’ ” that Sullivan tolls the truth,
THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1887.
FACTS ABOUT CANCER.
Its Causes, and What is Done for It—
Increase in England and Here.
From, the New York Sun.
It seems to be admitted now by all the
surgeons who have been consulted in the
case of the Crown Prince of Russia, that
the hero of Sailowa, Wdssenburg, and
Worth is suffering from cancer of the
larynx, a disease for which there is small
chance of cure by operation. Iu this coun
try cancer has attracted widespreadeatten
tion during the last few years ou account of
the number of prominent men who have
fallen victims to it. The late Senator Hill
of Georgia, Gen. Grant, John Roach, and
several others of note have died of this pain
Cancer is pre-eminently a disease of the
white race, and apparently of representa
tives of an advanced degree of civilization.
It is rare in the colored races. Among the
negroes in the South, before emancipation,
it wus externally infrequent. Some practi
tioners of large experience had never seen a
case in the negro before the late war. Dur
ing tlie last ten years, however, a number
have been observed. It is three times as
frequent in women as in men. It is a
disease of advanced life, over two-thirds of
the cases occurring after the fortieth year.
It is hereditary in about one-fourth of the
cases. It often occurs, however, as a con
sequence of injury or protracted inflamma
tion in cases where no hereditary influence
Any organ or part of the body may be
attacked by cancer. It is most frequent in
the female breast, uterus, the stomach,
liver, lips, and tongue, but it is also found in
the brain and spinal cords, iu bones, and, in
rare cases, oven in the heart. Cancer is un
doubtedly becoming more frequent. In
England the rate of increase of deaths of
cancer per million of inhabitants was IU
per cent, from 1801 to 1884. During the ten
years ending 1879 the total number of deaths
from cancer in England and Wales was 111,
300, an average of over 11,000 per year. The
ratio of increase in this country seems to
be even greater than abroad. The high
pressure under which people live at present
seems to have something to do with this
increase. The statistics of the last census
show that cancer is much more-prevalent in
the Northern and Eastern Stales than in
the South and West. Surgeons are begin
ning to attribute to depressed conditions of
the nervous system a large share in the
causation of cancer. In the cases of
Gen. Grant and Mr. Roach, tho outbreak
of the disease seemed to follow closely
upon business troubles which came upon
Smoking is popularly credited with the
production of cancer of the lips and tongue,
and there seems good reason to accept this
as a cause. Women, who are so frequently
snbject to cancer, rarely suffer with the
disease as it affects the lips and tongue.
It is said that in some parts of Brit
tany, where women smoke pipes ami cigar
ettes, they suffer from cancer of the lips as
often as the men.
Cancer of the larynx or windpipe is one
of the rarer forms of the malady. How
ever, during twenty years, from 18(56 to
1886, the larynx has been extirpated for
cancer about seventy-live times. It has
been done three or four times during
the present year in this country. About
two-thirds of the cases succumb to the
operation, while of those who recover a large
proportion die from a recurrence of the
Cancer curers are found everywhere
vaunting special caustics, warranted to re
move the cancer with certainty and without
danger. Most of these caustics contain a
large proportion of arsenic, and if not used
with great care may cause grave symptoms
of poisoning. In several cases death has re
sulted from absorption of the poison. All of
these applications are more or less painful,
and much slower in action than the judici
ous use of the knife, hot iron, electric caut
ery, or electrolysis.
A temporizing policy is a bad one to adopt
in dealing with a cancer. It should either
be treated energetically or be let alone. In
spite of the bad results following operations
upon the larynx or stomach, the prospects
of permanent cure when other organs are
attacked are much more favorable. Recent
statistics of cancer of the breast show that
about one case in ten is pemamently cured
by operation. Even when it recurs it is apt
to be milder and less painful, and life is at
all events prolonged. The most favorable
results are shown by operations upon the lip,
of which over one-half remain well after
The fact that cancer is at first a local dis
ease, and curable by operation, if taken in
time, is becoming more generally known,
and people no longer look upon it with the
dread which it formerly inspired. The ear
lier the aid of the surgeon is sought the more
favorable the prospect of a thorough re
moval of the growth and of a permanent
cure. No medicine is known which will ar
rest the disease.

“ Snoerlatively Perfect!"
Messrs. Chivkering cf 1 Sons:
Gentlemen —After many years’ experi
ence as a pianist in this country and
Europe, and after having used the instru
ments of the leading makers hero and
abroad, it is with pleasure that I give to
you my matured opinion upon your pianos.
In them I find the purest, truest and most
musical tone , together with an action
which will answer my demands equally in
the most piatwissimo playing and in the
heaviest forte effects, and combining these
qualities with an almost endless resonance.
1 can find for them no more fitting praise
than that of the Great Maestro, Franz Liszt,
who declares them “Superlatively Perfect.”
(Signed) Julie Rive-King.
New York, October 11, 1887.
